Sajid Javid says Britons are hard workers after leaked Liz Truss ‘graft’ remarks


Former health secretary says context of Truss’s comments on British workers needing ‘more graft’ unclear

The former health secretary Sajid Javid has distanced himself from comments made by Liz Truss in a leaked recording, in which she said British workers needed “more graft” and implied they lacked the skills of foreign workers.

When asked about the comments on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Javid said he did not know the context in which the comments were made, but he thought British workers were the most hardworking in the world.
